The best Ambrosia salad
Ambrosia Salad has all the goodness of the classic fruit salad that's usually served during Thanksgiving dinners, but it has the added goodness of marshmallows and nuts! It is full of flavors and is also very colorful! But this is not a "salad" in the traditional sense because it is sweet. So we love serving this as a dessert!
With the combination of fresh or preserved pineapple, tangerine, sweetened grated coconut, and maraschino cherries, we just add a little powdered sugar to the cream as we whip it up! This easy and delicious recipe is sure to be a hit at your parties!

If you want to make the cream from scratch, beat the cold cream in a mixer until smooth and fluffy, and add powdered sugar and a little vanilla extract before adding it with the rest of the ingredients.
HOW TO MAKE AMBROSIA SALAD WITH FRESH PENCIL?
We love doing it sometimes with a fresh whip instead of whipped cream. Simply combine all ingredients with a well-shaken smoothie instead of whipped cream, and voila!
HOW TO MAKE AMBROSIA SALAD WITH OUR CREAM?
Using sour cream in this recipe is a good option, especially if you run out of whipped cream. Sour cream adds a little flavor to this dessert, so it surprises our family when we serve it to them. Simply replace the whip with sour cream and mix the ingredients well. Balance the sweetness of the fruits very well in this recipe.
HOW MANY CALORIES IN AMBROSIA SALAD?

HOW TO MAKE AMBROSIA SALAD WITH CHEESE CREAM?
If you want to add a slightly sweet flavor and a pinch of cream cheese, first beat on low heat. Then gradually add your whipped cream to mix and match with the rest of the ingredients.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE WATER AND AMBROSIA SALAD?
These two dishes are very similar, except for one ingredient. Watergate salad has an additional ingredient, which is pistachio pudding.
HOW TO MAKE AMBROSIA SALAD WITH JELL-O?
Use a 3-ounce package of gelatin and follow these basic instructions. Dissolve the gelatin in 1 cup of hot water and stir for 2 minutes until dissolved. Add 1 cup of cold water and combine. Refrigerate until firm, for about four hours. Cut the gelatin into cubes and combine with the rest of the ingredients.
HOW TO MAKE LOW CALORIE AMBROSIA SALAD?
To cut some calories, we suggest using light cream or light sour cream in this recipe. Also, yogurt is an option, and you can also use fat-free yogurt.
HOW LONG CAN THE AMBROSIA SALAD SAT?
Since we use dairy in it, it must be cooled at all times. We suggest serving it on top of a larger bowl filled with ice to maintain its freshness. You should probably change the ice once or twice throughout the party.
